DANNY Rowe has this afternoon signed for Chesterfield – just 92 days after joining City.

The striker has returned to the National League, where he scored prolifically for Fylde, after becoming frustrated at being left out in recent games.

The Spireites have paid an undisclosed fee for the 32-year-old, who scored five times in his brief spell at Valley Parade.

Mark Trueman said Rowe, who signed from Oldham in January, had made it clear that he wanted to move on after his lack of involvement.

Trueman said: “We’ve had a number of conversations with him over the past couple of weeks and had a positive one yesterday about him being in our plans.

“Unfortunately, Danny has shown a real intent to leave the football club so we’re not going to stand in his way. We’ve got to move on.

“We’ve identified some attacking targets for the summer which will allow us to play a more expansive type of football.”

Rowe scored five in 18 appearances but only started one of the last eight games – and did not come off the bench in the defeats against Harrogate and Tranmere.

Trueman denied there had been a relationship breakdown with the striker.

He added: “Danny’s done well when he came in and got us out of a position where we were struggling and obviously Lee Novak was injured.

“He was in our plans moving forward but if somebody doesn’t want to be at Bradford City, we’re not going to stand in his way”

“Danny’s been a good professional while he’s been in the building but it’s not right in his opinion so that’s his decision to move on.”

Chesterfield are currently pushing for the National League play-offs in seventh but have lost their last two games.

Tonight is the non-league deadline for registering players.
